Besides being a writer, I’m a martial arts practitioner with experience in many fighting systems including medieval and Japanese swordsmanship. After years of training I got myself a fitness instructor’s license with specialization in self-defense. I’ve always loved great fighting stories and with my passion for close quarters combat I was naturally drawn to fantasy.
Unable to contain my feelings and inspirations from reading good stories, and disappointed by many mediocre and bad ones, I decided to write my own. I hope my ideas will find their fans and bring joy to as many people as possible.
In this world, humans have forsaken faith in invisible all-powerful beings who have dominion over everything and even the idea of ‘king’ as someone who stands at the top of ruling hierarchy. What remains of past kingdoms are many lords and rich individuals who work for the sake of maintaining peace and prosperity amongst fellow humans. There are no conflicts big enough to be called wars, as people are more or less united against a common enemy – the monster race, which is dealt with by employing specialized mercenary forces.
Planned actions mixed with unexpected coincidences often result in chaos and one can only try to adapt to constant changes, while fates of humans and monsters cross and intertwine in various ways.
One Knight. One dragon. One decision that can change everything.
Shirai Knighthood is humanity’s strongest specialized mercenary force to battle the monster race. It has been that way for a thousand years and there is no one who doubts this fact. But some problems can’t be solved simply by killing monsters, even if one is a part of such an organization.
